Ombre morning post & simply stars cheers

Midweek again! Where is the time going - one hot day is leading to another at the moment here in the UK - isn't it strange how we long for hot summers but the reality is so different when we are granted our wishes :/ 

I should re-title this post midweek masculine - here's why ....

Using the gorgeous new Venetian Romance designer series paper (130144 £9.95), the background card is in pacific point cardstock overlaid with the gorgeous Venetian Romance paper. 

The sentiment is stamped using the Morning Post Alphabet stamps (w 132042 £41.95, c 126592 £33.95) stamped in (no particular order) Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky & Midnight Muse which were then fussy cut and mounted onto some new Whisper White Bakers Twine (124262 £2.50 for 22.9m). 

The cute stars are from the new Simply Stars stamp set - I think this one is going to be a real hit with crafters as it's so versatile for all ages and genders :)
